Poem: If We Could Ever Hear Moonlight Speak?

In the words of Rampo Edogawa “This is what I am talking about: the bewitching power of moonlight. Moonlight incites dark passions like a cold flame, making hearts burning with the intensity of phosphorus.”

Ever wonder how moonlight would sound
If we could ever hear it speak?
What would it say about
For how long it would weep?

Or how many times would it say
“Please love me for me”
For it’s the stars we love
And the moon we adore
But the moonlight we sometimes do ignore.

It would sound like a weeping angel
Longing to be free
From all that we say to it,
Every night it must plea.

It would think of poets as crazy people
For they compare love and loneliness to the moon but forget how left out the moonlight feels.
But it would always remember
I’m sure how we write about it
Like it’ll hear all we have to say.

And someday
Just maybe
We’ll hear it speak
Replying to all those
Who’ve been talking to him
Since always
Just so they feel
Somebody out there
Somewhere
Listens!

Imagine what would happen if moonlight speaks for real? If it asks us to adore and love it the same way the stars and the moon are? And at last, think how will she reply to all those who talk to him?
